Printer Problem : CUPS or lpr?

A friend of mine is trying to get this printer working on a debian machne and shes using cups and having a dependency problem along the way...

Before i get into that, can lpr be used in replacement to cups? and if so, does anyone know of a basic tutorial/howto to set that up?

I have minimal expirience in the printer world and I keep all my work digital Don't want to give her the wrong info without asking my crew

thanks in advanced.
